Simba

1 Year Old!

One year ago, Simba graced the planet with his arrival. At this time, he looked more like a little munchkin but who aren’t at their best at a few weeks? Ten weeks on, he immediately shot through our defences (so the song goes…) and melted our hearts as we arrived at the breeders. On the long ride home, he impressed us by being able to hold onto his urges until we arrived home. He has been the quickest to house train.

Table of Contents Plus 1303 released

Changelog:

  • New: option auto insert after the first heading. Thanks to @thelawnetwork for requesting it.
  • New: allow headings to be excluded from the table of contents. This is available both globally under the advanced section of Settings > TOC+ and individually with the TOC shortcode. Check out the help material for examples. Thanks to the many of you that requested it.
  • New: advanced option to lowercase all anchors. The default is off.
  • New: advanced option to use hyphens rather than underscores in anchors. The default is off.
  • New: shortcode to list all posts in alphabetical order grouped by first letter.
  • New: added Slovak translation, curtesy Branco Radenovich.
  • Add version numbers to CSS/JS files to better support setups that cache these files heavily for timely invalidation. Thanks to boxcarpress for the amendments.
  • Add CSS class ‘contracted’ to #toc_container when the table of contents is hidden. Thanks to Sam for suggesting it.
  • With smooth scroll enabled, do not use an offset if no admin bar is present and the offset value is default. This means that public users do not have the offset space at the top.
  • New help material for developers under the help tab.
  • Added API function: toc_get_index() lets you retrieve a table of contents to be placed within PHP. Check out the new developer help material for examples.
  • Allow anchors to be filterable using toc_url_anchor_target to customise further through code. Check the new developer help material for an example. Thanks to Russell Heimlich for the tip.
  • Adjust CSS and JS registration.
  • Updated jQuery Smooth Scroll to 1.4.10.
  • Fixed: When using the widget, addressed an issue where the index with special characters (such as ‘ and “) would not link to the correct spot within the content. Thanks to esandman for raising it.
  • Fixed: Saving at Settings > TOC+ resets TOC+ widget options. Thanks to Chris for reporting it.

Table of Contents Plus 1211 released

Changelog:

  • New: allow %PAGE_TITLE% to be used in the TOC title.  Note that this also works in the widget title too.  When used, this variable will be replaced with the current page’s title.  Thanks to Peter for the request.
  • New: new option to hide the TOC initially.  Thanks to Jonas, Jonathan, and Doc Germanicus for requesting it.
  • New: added ability to customise visited TOC link colour.
  • New: option to restrict generation to a URL path match.  For example, you can restrict to wiki pages that fall under http://domain/wiki/ by entering /wiki/ into the field.  The setting can be found in the advanced options.  Thanks to Tux and Justine Smithies for suggesting it.
  • Make regular expressions less greedy.  That means you can have multiple headings on a single line whereas before you needed to ensure each heading was on their own line.  Thanks to drdamour for raising and providing a fix.
  • Also make regular expressions match across multiple lines.  This means you can have your single heading split across many lines.
  • Better accessibility: when using smooth scrolling, allow for focus to follow the target, eg tabbing through will continue from the content block you clicked through to.
  • Better performance: as requested by a few, javascript files have been consolidated into one and both javascript and CSS files are now minified.
  • ‘Auto’ is now the default width which means it’ll take up the needed amount of space up to 100%.  The previous default was a fixed width of 275px.
  • Added the ability to exclude entire branches when using [sitemap_pages] and [sitemap_categories] using the exclude_tree attribute.  Thanks to Benny Powers for requesting it.
  • Wrap index numbers around span tags to enable easier CSS customisation.  The spans are have two classes: toc_number and toc_depth_X where X is between 1 and 6.  Thanks to Matthias Krok for requesting it.
  • Moved the ‘preserve theme bullets’ option into the advanced section.
  • Updated and simplified the translation file.
  • Fixed: [sitemap_categories] using the wrong label when none was specified.  Thanks to brandt-net for raising it.  The labels for both [sitemap_pages] and [sitemap_categories] may be removed in a future update as you can insert the title within your content.

Simba

A new family member

Drove out to Young to pick up our new family member, roaringly named Simba, from a reputable breeder who have been breeding golden retrievers for over 20 years.  Their pups have made their way through various competitions and some have found duty through Guide Dogs Australia.

After seeing him for the first time, he was the largest of the litter and the most energetic, playful and explorative.  It would seem that he was the alpha of the group, thoughts that were later reaffirmed as he dominated pillows, towels, ugg boots, etc.  Being a puppy, he has a knack for tasting and chewing everything: daffodils, rose bushes, branches, weeds, rocks, metal railings…

His formal name is Rivajazz Simba and he has potential for something big, but probably take after me and be a champion snorer.

And his pedigree:

  • Sire: Montego Chandon On Ice (S: Ch Shogold Champagne On Ice, D: Ch Montego Absolute Bliss)
  • Dam: Montego Star Dreamer (S: Ch Inniscroft Keep the Faith, D: Inniscroft Twinkle-Li’l-Star)

Simba was born on 30/7/12.  Young is slightly over 2 hours drive from Canberra but the drive was pleasant both there and back as we were lucky enough not to have any toilet accidents.

London

So we finally made it to our final destination unharmed, unscathed and concluded our on-road journey as well.  In total, we travelled 1470km in a tank and a half of diesel – bloody awesome fuel economy.  The car we drove was a Skoda Octavia S 1.6 5D that had only done 4486km beforehand.  We can also cross Wales off our list as we took an unplanned detour via the western parts of Wales.

Beaulieu, Stonehenge and Batheaston

Beaulieu (locals pronouce it bew-lee) is home to the national motor museum, Beaulieu Abbey and is situated in the New Forest National Park.  Driving to this destination, we saw free roaming horses, donkies and cows and within habitated areas.  They were behaved enough to come close to and pet.  The Abbey dates back to 1204 but this time I was there for the automotive kind.

For one year only, one of the museum’s exhibitions showcases 50 vehicles from the 007 Bond movies.  It is the single most largest collection in the world.

Liverpool

The drive from Windermere to Liverpool took around 1.5 hours but felt very short with all the things to look at along the way (and of course the 130km/h motorways helped).  There are some strange roundabouts here, especially the ones with traffic lights on the roundabout itself!  A work colleague warned me about Swindon’s magic roundabout which we’ll fully avoid.
